Spicy Oven-roasted Tri-tip with Potatoes
Tri-tip is one of the best cuts of meat and that makes it perfect for this oven roasted dish. The meat is so tender that you don't even need a knife to cut it. This meal is easy to throw together and it'll taste like you've been slaving over a hot stove for hours. It also has a big kick of heat from the red pepper flakes, which is great for spicy food lovers. If you don't like too much spice, you can tone down the pepper flakes or leave them out completely.
1 lb tri-tip, cut into six pieces
1 medium green pepper, sliced
2 small roma tomatoes, sliced
1 yellow onion, sliced
4 Tbsp tomato sauce
1 cup chicken broth
2 medium potatoes, boiled for 10 minutes and sliced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
